Usual rules apply me and the site site will not be responsible for your actions/inactions as a result of the information provided.

Open the bonnet and remove the three screw here:


Remove two torx screws (one on either side) located here (T30)


Remove the two screws (one on either side) located here:

(the red dots show the bumper clips)
Undo this screw

The bumper can now be given a bit of a tug where the clips are.
Once the clips are off there is a little lug located here:

Pull the bumper slightly downwards to unclip this lug.

And voila. You can now remove the bumper and should be left with this:


All the clips need replacing as they break when they are pulled off.

You know those horrible grey plastic bumpers on the Mk1's well mines been painted to match black body paint , badly. My question is this Can you replace the old style plastic bumpers with the new Mk2 colour coded 1s? Ie like in the pic above, and is it a straight swap or do you need a fixing/bracket kit?

"All the clips need replacing as they break when they are pulled off", Are these easy to source Ie ebay or are they a specialist thing?

Lifesaver! Although you might wanna edit in to get some clips handy before starting! I had a late night rendezvous with my radiator and I can't repeat the expletives used when I read that with the bumper already parted from the front of the car! I've now, however, named her 'Lucky' after 2 close shaves with a potential blown head gasket and every single clip surviving bumper removal @ 9pm xD

Can the end section be removed on its own and replaced with a new one? I have a new one and need to fit it. I have 10 clips too. Is this pretty straightforward? Any help greatly appreciated.

You should be able to. There is a clip and a screw on the back got the screw out but I couldn't get them apart. Didn't need to for my job though so didn't worry about it.
